If you are from New Jersey then you understand the appeal of this savory staple and have probably engaged in an argument or ten whether it’s Taylor Ham or Pork Roll. If you’re not from NJ, we’re sorry you had to go without all your life. The NJ way to order is with egg and cheese on a roll, but if you really want to savor all of its piggy deliciousness, I personally recommend ordering a plain (ie naked) on a roll.
SLATER'S DELI– Leonardo. It’s a 15 min drive but worth it for their wildly generous portion of meat when you order it naked.Bay Ave Bakery - uber generous portions of thin sliced crispy pork happiness is the ultimate way to go. Just a couple block walk.
BAY AVENUE BAKERY - Uber generous portions of thin sliced crispy pork happiness is the ultimate way to go. Just a couple block walk.
GIRLS CAFE– We definitely recommend getting this one on a roll which they toast on the giant griddle so the bread soaks up all the savory juices that help make this sandwich so dreamy.
KATZ GRILL– just a couple blocks away and a damn fine spot for a generously portioned, juicy Taylor Ham sandwich. Bonus you can pick up a few groceries or other conveniences you may need for your trip OR you can get it delivered.
JOHNNYS PORK ROLL TRUCK -parked at the north end of the Asbury Park Boardwalk. The owner is as salty as the pork and will definitely make fun of you for ordering your sandwich plain but their generous stack and perfectly crisped edges are worth the shame and the drive.
